When Is the Best Time
Fascinating historic site year-round. However, it gets crowded especially during the busy summer months. To AVOID CROWDS be there early right before they open at 9:00 AM. It's least crowded from 9 until 10 AM. The average visitor spends 1,5 hours there. Alternatively be there 1-2 hours before they close and stay until the end. During that last hour it's less crowded as well.
The best months with decent weather to avoid crowds after the busy summer is from mid-September until October.
